This week's issues:

1. Note from the Editors
2. Job: Assistant Professor of Astronomy, Franklin and Marshall College
1. From the editors:

The shocking, horrifying events of last Tuesday -- four airplane 
hijackings leading to deadly attacks on New York and Washington -- 
have consumed and preoccupied all of us. Because it is not a moment 
that many can focus on the issue of women in astronomy, the present 
issue of AASWOMEN includes only the one time-critical submission 
(a job ad). The regular discussion forum will resume next week.

Our hearts go out to those who lost family or friends.

2. Assistant Professor of Astronomy, Franklin and Marshall College

Applications are invited for a tenure-track (asst. prof.) position 
in astronomy starting in fall 2002 in the Department of Physics 
& Astronomy, Franklin & Marshall College.

Candidates must demonstrate substantial commitment to undergraduate 
teaching, with prior experience designing and teaching undergraduate
astronomy and astrophysics courses preferred. A vigorous research
program is also required which can involve undergraduate students in
publishable resarch projects using F&M's facilities. These include 
access to the NURO (Flagstaff) 0.8-m telescope with CCD, the campus 
0.4 meter telescope with PMT and CCD, the Phoenix-10 robot telescope 
in S. Arizona, two workstations running IRAF, and six 8-inch 
Celestron telescopes with CCDs and indoor PC control. See for 
further details about our program.

F&M is a selective private liberal arts college with 1,850 students 
located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, a small city of 50,000 about 
1-1/2 hours from Baltimore and Philadelphia. A Ph.D. in astronomy 
or astrophysics is required. A complete application package must 
include a statement of teaching philosophy and research interests, 
a description of possible undergraduate research projects, curriculum 
vitae, and copies of graduate and undergraduate transcripts. Letters 
of recommendation (at least three) should be sent directly to the 
address below. Applications must be received on or by October 1, 2001. 
Franklin & Marshall is committed to cultural pluralism through 
the hiring of women and minorities and encourages all interested 
individuals to apply. EOE/AA.
